Congratulations to the MWSA Athlete of the Month for December 2015 – Alyssa White!

Alyssa’s enthusiasm, energy and positive attitude have earned her the respect of her coaches and fellow players and it is for this reason Alyssa has been selected as MWSA’s Athlete of the Month. Here is a little bit about Alyssa and why she plays with MWSA;

Name: Alyssa White

Age: 10

Favourite Sports: Basketball, Swimming & Sledge Hockey

Why Alyssa plays these Sports: In her life Alyssa has under gone 15 surgeries on her spine, hips, legs and feet. Alyssa hasn’t gone many years without surgery which always meant spending many months in casts. She wasn’t able as a younger child to be very active or participate in group sports until a year ago. Today Alyssa flourishes in all para/wheelchair sports and loves to try as many as she can.

What is your favourite part of being an MWSA Athlete: “ The smile on her face after the first class was so rewarding. She’s proud of herself that she can participate and have fun. But in her words” I don’t feel different here”
